One Year Blogaversary!!...

Hey everyone

So today is a momentous milestone in my blog-life...as of today my little blog is one year old

I can't believe that I've been blogging for a whole year - a whole 180 posts later  and two re-designs and I'm still going strong! I'm really impressed with myself that I have continued to keep up with blogging for this long - seeing as I initially only started my blog as a way of retaining some form of writing in my life seeing as I was starting my science degree at uni and therefore leaving my days of studying English behind me. 

Just for a laugh here's my first post by the way - to be honest I feel like this is still a pretty good description of myself even a year on - I still desperately want to travel, particularly to the South; I'm still obsessed over anything American (my latest obsession is monograms of course!), my unhealthy appetite for spending my money is still present (much to the upset of my bank balance) and what was my guilty pleasure of listening to country music has become a permanent fixture on any playlist I make :)

I am so incredibly amazed and grateful that my blog has 33 followers (to be honest I didn't expect to ever even have one!), that you guys reading comment on my posts and that people actually read my blog (6000 pageviews! - that's awesomely crazy!) - that means the world.

Here are some of my fave posts from this past year...
Having successfully blogged for a year with no expectations or ambitions I decided that this year I'd like to set some goals for this little blog of mine and myself..
  1. Successfully start my own link-up (hint hint)
  2. Participate in a swap :)
  3. Reach 100 followers (go big or go home after all!)
  4. Pluck up the courage to promote my blog on twitter (I'm unsure of what my IRL friends might think of me blogging so I've always put myself off doing this)
  5. Initiate more button swaps 
  6. Participate in a blog takeover for a post - ie. someone blogs on my blog and I blog on theirs
I think that's more than enough to be getting on with!

So thank you again for be a reader of my blog - I really appreciate every pageview, every comment and especially every new follower that this blog gets :)

Here's hoping that this next year of my blog is even more successful that the last was!
